YouTube Statistics - how many countries?

YouTube's reach is pretty amazing; truly global. Our new(ish) YouTube Channel of nursery rhyme videos has had an audience from 184 countries in around 4 months since our first upload! What makes this truly amazing is that there are a total of 196 countries in the world so we've been seen in nearly 94% of them!

I think that's pretty cool :)

Baa Baa Black Sheep 10,000 YouTube views

In this post from September 2011 I mentioned that our Twinkle Twinkle Little Star video had passed the 10k views on YouTube. This was 22 days after uploading it. Pretty good result as I was hoping for 10k views within the first month...

Really pleased and amazed to say that the latest nursery rhyme video, Baa Baa Black Sheep, has already hit the 10,000 mark after just 7 days! Fantastic...I wonder how many views it can get in the first month?

3d animation studios: How to choose the best 3d studio for your 3d animation project

3d modeling, 3d design, 3d animation movies, and so on, are extremely complicated processes (not to mention time consuming and expensive projects to put together,) so it's absolutely vital to choose a 3d animation studio that you're totally comfortable working with.
A 3d artist often has to create an entire 3d world and 3d design, with a mixture of 3d models and animated characters using the storyboards you created – so an open and honest communication is required throughout the projects' lifespans. Finding a team that has these qualities can be tricky and having done your due diligence on the company it becomes like anything else and also requires a decent dollop of good fortune! For instance a lot companies talk a good pre-sales talk but how many times have we all been let down once we've started using their services?
Here at Little Baby Bum we were extremely fortunate and grateful to have found Dream 4D – they were chosen from a pool of 45 bids. From the initial bids we examined each studio's portfolio of work and then asked some key questions about how they work, if they understand our needs, etc. This process took a few week by which time we had whittled the list down to just 3. From here we asked each studio to create something based on a storyboard (actually it was the storyboard for our Baa Baa Black Sheep video) and the answer appeared before our eyes and became a simple choice for us.
I would personally recommend using my choice of a 3D animation studio - Dream 4D - for your 3d animation projects. Get in touch with myself or directly with Dream 4D. Check out their range of services here

1. Incy Wincy Spider - we will also make Itsy Bitsy Spider for our American viewers! :)

2. ABC Song - again we'll be making two versions: UK English "A to Zed" and US English "A to Zee"

3. If You're Happy And You Know It (Clap Your Hands)

4. Jack and Jill

5. Humpty Dumpty

6. Hickory Dickory Dock!

7. Old MacDonald Had A Farm

The above list is subject to alterations but this is what we have planned so far. If you have any requests then please do let us know and we'll see what we can do!
